The Storm that ROCKED North Carolina

You guys. Seriously. They are predicting (don't get scared) one to maybe even TWO inches of snow tomorrow! Woah. Laura Ingalls Wilder and her long winter got nothing on this. They are calling it a winter storm warning. An INCH of snow, folks. The news is saying they have their backup generators ready. The stores … Continue reading The Storm that ROCKED North Carolina

In which I totally tell you the end of Six Feet Under in the first paragraph

Today was a ridiculous day. First of all, I had a dream that Marvin Gardensalad was having an affair.

Near. Far. Wherever you are. I know that I’ll save myself first.

Last night, Marvin Gardensalad and I watched a Titanic movie. Not the movie where Leonardo DiCaprio is heimliching Kate Winslett or measuring her waistline or whatever, but an old, black-and-white version of the Titanic. Pretty much had the same plot. Anyway, in the movie, they kept telling women and children to get on the boat … Continue reading Near. Far. Wherever you are. I know that I’ll save myself first.

People seem to enjoy it when I complain about poor Marvin.

Yesterday, I decided that I needed to get new clothes for my new job. Well, I didn't decide that yesterday. I have known I would need new clothes because (a) you could wear whatever you wanted to my old job in LA, and I do mean anything (I'd really like to go into detail about … Continue reading People seem to enjoy it when I complain about poor Marvin.
